Though expanded and moved a short distance, this structure dates to the early settlement of Homer. It may have been a lawyer’s office, considering its proximity to the courthouse. Typical of the era, it featured a vernacular interpretation of the Greek Revival. It’s located in the yard of the Jolly House.

    I find this very interesting. Also, my Mother who was born in Homer, said she was delivered by Dr. Jolley. She passed away in 2002 at the age of 88. I wonder about a connection to this Dr. Jolley.

      Hello. Just wondering about Dr. Jolley. My mom said my brother, Steve Jolley Simmons was named for him on February 5, 1946. I never heard much about this doctor.
